Hello everyone, I'm Frances, Anne's new deputy. Quite a few of you will know me already as I have been a trustee of the charity for several years. I have gained a lot of experience and insight into immigration and detention issues through my work in this area and I look forward to this new challenge with Anne. I can't say I will be bringing youthful good looks to the office, but I will be bringing enthusiasm and a willingness to work hard for our client group. I hope to meet more of you in the near future.
A fantastic outcome of our 20th birthday conference is that the Right Worshipful, the Lord Mayor of Portsmouth, Steven Wylie, agreed to be a patron of our charity. This was formalised at the Lord Mayors Parlour on 5th November. Our Chair, Michael Woolley attended along with our Coordinator, Anne Dickinson plus Rediet Beyene, Jahn Karimi, and Aleidah Orinda, who are all regular faces at our drop in at All Saints Church in Portsmouth.
